Young Labour urged to maintain radical line

YOUNG Labour members were urged to maintain the radical line at conference today.

At the organisation’s Youth Day conference event, members heard from a wide array of speakers on topics such as community organising, international struggles, and cultural questions.

Co-director of the Together4Yes pro-choice campaign in Ireland Grainne Griffin told members that it is essential that they maintain the radical line and push forward for equality in Britain.

Kemptown MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle reported back on his experiences visiting Rojava, the revolutionary Kurdish region in northern Syria, while Ajmal Alami from the Democratic Socialists of America gave updates on the growing labour movement in the United States.

Salford Community Theatre director Sarah Weston discussed with shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon, Bhaskar Sunkara of Jacobin and other musicians and writers on how to build a socialist culture.

Labour’s new community organising unit offered training and advice to young activists.
